    1st DIY Top Quilt

    I recently finished my very first sewing project: a baffled down filled top quilt made out of Argon 67. Yes I now know how ridiculous of a first project this was to undertake, but I think it turned out really well. Not as good as our cottage manufacturers obviously, but I've already tried it out and it held up well under the lowest temperature rating!

    Material List:
    -2 yds Argon 67 (dutchware)
    -2.5" baffle wall no-see-um (dutchware)
    -7oz 850 down (wilderness logics)
    -30" grossgrain
    -4 snaps
    -36" 1/4" draw string
    -2 cord locks

    Weight - 11.6oz
